For Sale 1940 Buick 2-door - NICE

Recommended Posts

I am selling my outstanding 1940 Buick Special Model 40 two-door club sedan. This fine car has very nice black paint and a gray cloth interior. Powered by the 246 cubic-inch, inline overhead-valve straight eight with 3-speed manual transmission, this car is fitted with wide white wall tires, trim rings, optional fender skirts and fog lamps. It has nice chrome and is a very nice car that looks and drives great. The straight ohv 8 runs as smooth as silk.

My car is currently located in Canton, Ohio at the Motorcar Portfolio and can be seen Monday - Saturday 9AM to 5PM. Asking $13,995, and well worth the price, but I have a little room for negotiation. I have many cars in my collection and am running out of space, currently concentrating on convertibles. Call 800-653-8900 or 330-453-8900 and ask for Bob Lichty, or view on line at the following link:

Seats are not authentic, engine is not authentically painted. Wrong gray, black stuff is painted gray. Can't see the skirts well enough to tell if they are genuine or aftermarket.

The car is very clean, it's a two door, the price is reasonable, and he's willing to negotiate. Give the guy a break.

You must be a lot of fun at parties. :rolleyes:

Per current Krause Publications "2013 Collector Car Guide" - 1940 Buick Series 40, 8 cyl. 2 door sedan:

#1 $31,400

#2 $21,980

#3 $14,130

The asking price more than takes into consideration the discrepancies noted by first reply. This is a very nice car with excellent paint and chrome, a straight and nice solid body with no rust and presents itself well. You will look a long time to find anything nicer in this price range, as 1940 Buicks two doors are not easy to find in such condition.

It may be a good car for someone.

I appreciate the comments of Dynaflash, because Buick experts like him

can be very helpful to the prospective buyer. The comments were succinct

and one may feel they're harsh, but I know how much money they can save


And Dynaflash, I know you've served the hobby well over many years!
